                     Welcome to GNU TeXmacs

GNU TeXmacs is a free scientific text editor, which was both inspired
by TeX and GNU Emacs. The editor allows you to write structured documents
via a wysiwyg (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) and user friendly interface.
New styles may be created by the user. The program implements high-quality
typesetting algorithms and TeX fonts, which help you to produce
professionally looking documents. 

The high typesetting quality still goes through for automatically
generated formulas, which makes TeXmacs suitable as an interface
for computer algebra systems. TeXmacs also supports the Guile/Scheme
extension language, so that you may customize the interface and
write your own extensions to the editor. 

TeXmacs currently runs on PC's and PPC's under Gnu/linux (a >200MHz
processor and >32Mb of memory are recommended) and on sun computers.
Converters exist for TeX/LaTeX and they are under development for
Html/Mathml/Xml. In the future, TeXmacs is planned to evoluate towards
a complete scientific office suite, with spreadsheet capacities,
a technical drawing editor and a presentation mode.

macs – Struc­tured text ed­i­tor for

macs is a “struc­tured text ed­i­tor” with spe­cial sup­port for math­e­mat­i­cal ex­pres­sions. The type­set­ting qual­ity of the pro­duced doc­u­ments is in­tended to be as high as pos­si­ble, i.e., com­pa­ra­ble to the qual­ity of doc­u­ments pro­duced with ; The user in­ter­face aims to be as nat­u­ral and pow­er­ful as pos­si­ble. In par­tic­u­lar, the text you see on the screen cor­re­sponds ex­actly to what you get af­ter print­ing. macs comes with a typed lisp ex­ten­sion lan­guage. Like emacs, this al­lows you for in­stance to re­de­fine key­board and menu ac­tions. macs can also be used as an in­ter­face for com­puter al­ge­bra sys­tems. In par­tic­u­lar, au­to­mat­i­cally gen­er­ated math­e­mat­i­cal for­mu­las are type­set in a sat­is­fac­tory way. It is pos­si­ble to gen­er­ate and PostScript out­put from macs. After com­pi­la­tion, the out­put will re­sem­ble the PostScript out­put, al­though we guar­an­tee no com­plete com­pat­i­bil­ity be­tween macs and . It is also pos­si­ble to im­port “well writ­ten” doc­u­ments. The present re­lease in­cludes an in­ter­face with Ghostscript, which en­ables you to in­clude PostScript (and some other for­mats) of im­ages.
